Christoph Wälti graduated with a degree in Physics from ETH Zürich, Switzerland. In 2000, he received a PhD in Physics from the Laboratory of Low Temperature Physics at same institution for his studies on the superconductivity of heavy fermion materials. Shortly afterwards, he was awarded a Swiss Marie Curie Fellowship which allowed him to extend his research interests into a new area and he moved to the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge, UK, where he worked on DNA-based self-assembled nanoscale molecular complexes. In 2003, he was awarded an EPSRC Advance Fellowship and since 2004 he is at the University of Leeds working on molecular nanotechnology with particular focus on self-assembly applications and the interface between biology and semiconductors.
